The fine print

Under your APRA AMCOS Production Music licence you can edit Production Music tracks and vary the speed of the music for your production. However, you may not:

  • Alter or make an adaptation of the work in any way.
  • Use the music with lyrics other than those approved by the copyright owner.
  • Use commercially recorded published music (music sold through retail outlets). If you wish to use commercially recorded music in a production, please contact APRA AMCOS on 0800 69 2772 or email [email protected]
  • Use Production Music on commercial record releases.

If you want more information, you can find it in the terms of use and Client Code of Conduct when you log in to your portal.
